Did they use that gag 'What's your height and position?' .....'I'm five feet two and sitting down'.

As I have said,I collect anything I like. But as genres go, I like cartoons of the golden age (30es to 50es) and silent comedies.

I´m a big fan of classic cartoons. Especially Disney from the 30´s and 40´s. L & H are also big favourites, but I collect many gengres. I´d love to have some film noir features, but they are usually to expensive.

Just FILMS ON FILM. Don't really collect any specific type. If I enjoyed it I would buy it. Love a good War film, my tastes have changed over the years was never too bothered about musicals, but now quite enjoy some of them.

It was a big help when you could hire super 8 to see them before buying them.

My first and foremost love is science fiction, horror, and mystery. I prefer any of these mainly from the 1950's and earlier. But I will collect just about any kind of film that I can afford to buy.

Action, Drama,Horror, musicals, Animated, comedy ....etc etc and somewhere near towards the end sci fi for me for the reasons stated earlier.Bottom of the pile war films (pointless exercise IMHO) but I do confess to liking "Saving Private Ryan" and certain classics like "The Dirty Dozen" for example.
Some sci fi flims I do enjoy so long as they are pure fantasy based and don't take themselves too seriously, a little like the way I like most of my films to be with the exception of Drama productions.

The whole point of a film show to me is the sheer escapism of this horrid 21st Century we are all encapsulated in. Take me as far away from that as is possible, just like as in "The Time Machine", the happier I am! Please don't bring upon me any more science lectures, I am truly done for one lifetime!!

Same here, was quite happy in the '70s, no blodoy pc brigade, no Blair or Cameron, and not a mention of "Global warming" another friggin' con trick.
Anyway back to topic, Italian Westerns, Italian gothics, Sci-Fi from the 50s & 60s, Hammer and Universal horrors., plus Carry on type stuff, and the occasional war film like Longest Day or Das Boot.
